Story: 8/10
4 persons (3 students and a teacher) meet in the school chat room. They all blame the school as the source of their problems, so they decide to blow it up. As the characters get to know each other, they begin to realize that their problems are situated in other aspects of life as well, not just from the school. They start to help each other to deal with the problems.
'Loneliness' is a very important part of the story.

Art: 9/10
The art fits the serious theme; no chibis, no overdrawn gestures or expressions.

Rika, Saginuma (the protagonist) goes to highschool with a smile on her face, she gets good grades, she has a bunch of friends and the year before she got second place in the inter-highschool championships of track-and-field but she quit and she's single.

School life at its best, no?

Behind that plastic smile, Rika, Saginuma is morose. Her ex-boyfriend had moved on, dating the up and coming track-and-field star of the school; Rika watches from afar, as her boyfriend's relationship deepens with his new girlfriend and as the girlfriend, slowly gets better and better at track-and-field until; maybe... she'll be better than Rika...? But what is read more

I kind of got this manga on a whim, after reading some of the reviews.
WOW! I started reading this just for a little before I went to bed, and ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting - very unusual for me now as I tend to fall asleep easier than I did 20 years ago (yes, I'm old). But it definetly says something that I actually turned out the light, then turned it back on, walked over to the shelf and pulled Volume two off because I HAD HAD HAD to know what happened.

The story and characters in this story are outstanding - read more

Okay so this is my first review so please bear with me.

Story:
X-Day is about a group of kids who meet online in a forum. They talk about how much school sucks and how much they cant wait to get out and into the real world, much like kids do in the real world. When a girl under the username 11 says how she wishes school would just disappear another person under the username Polaris comes up with an insane plan...to blow up the school! 11, Polaris along with two other people from the chat room come together in order to plan the actual blowing read more

User Recommendations

X-Day and After School Nightmare are both titles by the same author. Therefore, the art and "feel" is similar. The characters of both series are tragically drawn, conflicted with themselves, and interesting.
Although they certainly take a different approach to the malcontent of youth, there is a very similar feeling between X-Day and Line. Perhaps it is the condensed nature of both or the element of suspense. Or perhaps it is just looking at anomie and seeking a solution, whether it is to punish those who have caused pain or to try to stop people from punishing themselves. Whatever the case, if you like one it might be worthwhile to check out the other.
Both are about the problems life (especially school) can bring.
X-Day shows the problems of four different persons, while Life focuses on one girl with a lot of problems.
Although the plots are different,both are very deep,and show the strugles of a group of teenagers to make it through life.Momiji(Cat Street) and Nanaka(X-Day) are also very similar in looks and in some points of their personalities.
Both mangas are very good ^-^
